PODCAST. From KPDO‘s (Pescadero) Coastside Conversation.
Catherine Peery interviews Catalina “Cata” Gomes.
Catalina Gomes is a Ramaytush Ohlone Indigenous Elder.
Founder of the Muchia Te’ Indigenous Land Trust.
The Muchia Te’ Indigenous Land Trust (MTILT) is an Indigenous women-led organization committed to advancing Indigenous stewardship, sovereignty and restoration of natural and cultural resources in the unceded Ramaytush homeland and neighboring Indigenous territories. We work to educate the public about our Ramaytush stories and accounts of dispossession and attempted genocide.
Te Kwe A’naa Warep
The name of our 38-acre farm in San Gregorio, California, means “To Honor Mother Earth” in the Ramaytush language. Through a partnership with Deep Medicine Circle, we are caring for soil and water while growing food.
Te Kwe A’naa Warep is located in the Oljon tribelet territory, which is today known as San Gregorio.

About KPDO Radio and Website
We are a community radio station serving Pescadero, CA and the South Coast. We are a 501c3 non-commercial, and listener-sponsored station. The station provides access to local DJ hosted shows ranging from public affairs, news, music programming, and emergency service announcements, both locally and nationally sourced. KPDO also has volunteers in the local school district to provide medial learning opportunities to local students.
Pescadero Public Radio Service (PPRS) has developed community support and good relationships with the La Honda Pescadero Unified School District, local nonprofits, and community leaders. Our most important purposes are:
– Youth Broadcast Journalism at Pescadero Schools
– Emergency Communications for Pescadero and the Southcoast
– Locally run and operated Community News and Entertainment
In order to meet our goals we have developed Youth Broadcast Journalism classes, developed procedures and protocols for the radio station in the event of emergency, recruited DJ’s and trained them to provide local news and entertainment, and have met all FCC requirements and received approvals for the legal operation of the Station, including approval of the Radio Frequency, the antenna site (currently approved on Reservoir Road), and the power, 100 watt.
